perfume sprayed on " insect bites/stings)

hello doctor...

as i have a 4year old daughter, i' d like to know the following just so i dont do something that might do more harm than good.

i heard that if one gets bit/stung etc that one can spray real perfume on to help with the sting/pain/itching...

is this true or am i going to do more harm to the area ??

please get back to me asap...

thank you very much. have a great day further.

Dear Renee
Rather put on some Phenergan or Anthisan cream on the area
